The Federal Government (Dept of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources) has recently announced a national initiative to raise awareness for the need for Small and Medium Businesses to have effective cyber security. The platform being provided for SMB’s by the Federal Government for cyber security mitigation is based on the ‘Essential Eight’.

Loyal I.T. Solutions is the exclusive Central Coast representative to initiate and deliver the awareness campaign and set SMB’s up to make improvements in their cyber security. This initiative includes, free of charge, a series of videos and fact sheets plus a comprehensive cyber security assessment.

Cybercrime is not just for big business and government agencies, in fact it is more prevalent among SME’s, where subtle vulnerabilities are more prevalent.
